Very nice Myochin School iron plate tsuba with both sukashi bori as well as sukidashi bori. Very nice 4 lobed shape with good design of a war axe with small light surface carving. The iron plate is well done as expected by this school, and is in good condition. This type of tsuba looks very good on a sword, and even though it is very attractive in its design, was very practical as well. It has a very thick rim tapering outward from the center.
Top to bottom - 3.12 inches (7.92 cm)
Thickness of rim - 0 .23 inches (5.8 mm)
